Select the right variety
While choosing the right colors scheme is important, selecting the right varieties of plants is even more significant. We will recommend plants that will not only look beautiful but are also tough enough to survive! Key considerations are:
- The water needs of the plant. In the summer months, California has unusually dry spring through fall months, which make it difficult for water dependant plants to thrive. Winters tend to be more wet, so plants don’t need to be as low-water use.
- The amount of sun your landscape sees, aka exposure. This will change throughout the year, with less sun in the winter months. Many flowering plants need lots of sun to grow, but not all species need it. We can help you select the right colorful plants to correspond with the sun and shade ratios of your landscape.
- Soil type is also important as to plant selection and maintenance. Certain flowers and plants thrive in sandy soil or loam. Others love harder clay or rocky soils. Gachina can augment soils to ensure healthy growth but some plants need deeper root systems to thrive. Deciding on the types of plants before understanding soil content can lead to dying plants and excessive replacements.
- Terrain slope and drainage considerations also matter. Planting shallow-rooted plants in sloping terrains risks excessive soil runoff during rainy periods. Softer, absorbent soils will maintain water, possibly drowning plants in areas of poor drainage. Rocky or clay soil risks erosion of the top layers of steeper hillsides, exposing the subsoils and just creating mud. Proper soil preparation and plant selection can avoid these issues.
- Keep in mind how windy the Bay Area can get. Wind can cause roots to dislodge from soil, blow tall plants over and desiccate them. If your landscape is in a windy area, we can provide plants with flexible stems that are wind resistant.
- Lastly, we also consider the other plants in your landscape. Your landscape needs a balance of color, size, shape and type of plant to make it look appealing. We can design your landscape to look its best all year long.
Playing around with color is a great way to create a stunning landscape, and Gachina can help you to keep that color year-round with our season color planting services.
